The bickering windmills of Green Knowle

A small run on local hills: Well we knew it was coming so a last trip out saw us stravaiging the Ochills around Borland Glen. We parked at the Green Knowles wind farm access road and yomped up the service track to the unnamed top pt.474 . This is given the name Rowantree Craig by another site sugges...

Torlum torlum torlum tolumtolum

I rather wanted a walk where we could get some views having struck out yesterday so we were off again, somewhere local with no long drives and a little lower to make the going easier. Torlum is not a hill that I'd heard of before, don't know why as I'm sure it's a popular hill for the folk local to ...

The Scurran and Meall Tarsuinn by compass

$matches[2] Low cloud and rain, mild. A local walk perhaps! So we were off again a short drive to Gilmerton then up to the Foulfoot Inn and a parking space just beyond. No lead to day so I had to keep him close by along the road, think he forgot it! The walk started up part of one of Wade's roads u...

Fhudair liked to have topped out

Well the day started good but sometimes you have to know when you've bitten off more than you can chew ! Driving along Loch Earn after an unusually early start, the skies had some blue in them setting off the snow covered tops but the breaking waves on the loch suggested a bit of a breeze. Mild to e...

Beinn na Gainimh

Another late start saw not only the car parked at Newton Bridge but us double timing along Western Glen Almond to get to Conichan asap to give us a descent chance of a round in the sun. This hill was high on my list because I could not quite make up my mind if it hit my skyline from the daily walk a...

Graig Gibbon, Bankfoot

A day to work off the Christmas pudding without straying too far from home. Todays adventure was a walk from Little Glen Shee to Craig Gibbon's obelisk, another part of the skyine seen from my daily walk, so off we were to park at the ford at the head of Little Glen Shee our_route.gpx Todays walk wa...

Dun Dunsinane

Well this was another hill that we could see from our daily walk and what a cracker. $matches[2] Parking at the bend in the road just above Collace we went through the gate and read all the signs that dogs were to be kept on a lead due to lambing and livestock. Didn't think much of that so negotiate...

Obney Hill, Glen Garr

Obney Hill, is in my humble opinion one of the better walks in the Dunkeld, Birnam and Bankfoot areas. It's not too short but not too serious and rewards those who want to explore with fabulous view. The reason we wandered up this one was because I had seen it from King's Seat previously and then st...

Pole Hill and Beal Hill, perhaps walks for local people

Pole hill and Beal Hill, not names that evoke fear as tales of daring do are recalled, yet a pleasant and interesting stroll for any with a half, nae, quarter day to stroll on the Sidlaws. One for those with an interest in trig points or iron age hill forts or just a good ramble in a new area. our_r...

Vuirich nearly didn't make it!

Reasonably early start today and we had parked and changed at the South approach from Tarvie lodge but found that stalking was in progress and after a pleasant exchange with Jim the keeper who was taking a Client out we happily agreed to change our plans. Back to the car and driving around to the Lo...

Beinn a'Choin, the wetter way!

Well it was one of those wet Saturdays, not rain of biblical proportion that the South was suffering from but that dank, soggy wetness. It was driech. Why he didn't just leave me at home in my basket I don't know, he conned me, shouts of walkies and biscuits and before you knew it I was stuck in the...

Bheula beauty

It's not that far to Arrochar from Perth but the narrow roads down Gleann Mor makes it a slow affair, still we had the car parked by 10:00 and were walking soon afterwards. Parking a little problematic but we found a place by the loch and walked up the road to join the Cowal trail which we followed ...

Beinn Each

A little indecision really about where to go after a late start. Aventually he decided to head West and drove via Crieff to Loch Lunaig, parking at the layby just North of the main entrance to Ardchullarie Estate. Here a well marked path leads beside a burn and into the woods. Trees ! Worth noting t...

Meall na Fearna

My buddy is getting too old for this lark but he made a good fist of it today. Seemed spur of the moment but when he called and had that bag thing ready I was already in the car while he looked for his booties. We stopped at the shop for some food but more on that later. The trip over to Loch Earn d...
